Yes £200 is a bit to much

Find out how much the sensitivity is in watt and muliply it with 10

Reference level is 96 db 87db requires 9db = 8 watt x 10 = min 2x80 watt

I guess it depends what you call loud... I used to run jet engines inside buildings thats loud.!!! In a room 5x4m like my mancave 50w a side is more than loud enough without causing permanant hearing loss...

If you're looking for functionality in the digital age I would look at something like the Yamaha R-N803d. We have the R-N602 and it's a wonderful base for our system. The TV is connected with an optical cable. It's got a very decent MM phono stage. It does Spotify Connect really well. It does AirPlay really well. Etc, etc.
However, I just read about the new Onkyo TX-8390 and that seems to have even better functionality if you want to integrate your audio and video because it's got HDMI inputs and outputs. That's about the only things I miss with the Yamahas.

yes i am going to wait until i can go and listen to some amps set up with the kef speakers i use and i`m looking to spend about £600
Rega Brio is also a good call and it now has a decent integrated headphone amp if that's a consideration at all.
